Started off as " SAN PHOTOGRAPHY" by San, it was limited
to only Candid photography coverage.
After extensive screening and adapting to the requirements of clients we introduced video as well.
This meant that the team had to expand and with that
the title had to change.
Why 'BLACK KAAPI'? Well, we thought it was cool
and we are sticking to that.
Currently the team specializes in producing images and video that you would want to savor for the rest of your life.
We are extensively trying always to keep our finished product fresh and unique for each couple we shoot.
We ensure we give the same amount of effort for the portfolio packages that we take.
Do take some time to know who will be behind the craftsmanship we produce.
What is your date of Establishment?
Started Photography just after I got out of school; professionally started shooting by 2009
How far in advance should clients book your services?
The earlier the better but we would need at least a 2 week notice
What is the advance payment before the event?
We are open to collect the complete payment in full but would consider a 50% advance too.
What is your cancellation policy?
None so far but would appreciate people not to.
Why choose me?
Well, why not.
On a serious note we have seen enough weddings to realize what we are doing and how important a role we play in a wedding. We don't tag ourselves with a specific style but we ensure that the end result makes you and the previous generation happy.
Can you describe highlights of your work
So far, we have had a kick out of every wedding we have done. We try to create something special and different for every couple we shoot and once we have delivered the same to the client, the joy they get when they see is all the highlight you need.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Yes, I have a team that can handle to about 3 events a day
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
What special techniques do your specialize in?
We hate being called specialists in a particular style, which would mean we are narrowing the options we have in our creativity. We see every wedding as a new project, every client as a new opportunity and a their weddings as platform for bringing out new concepts and ideas. At the end of the day, if we are happy with the frames we have, that would be a technique well executed.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes, we have shot weddings with almost no light to shooting them with the sun right over your head. We tend to play with light as it plays along with us.
How many photographers do you work with?
A team of 6 photographers and 2 on back up.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, there are always back up plans.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Everything that we can carry with us.
We usually plan this before we start the shoot, once we know what we are shooting and how much light is available it narrows down what exactly we need for the shoot. Of course, the back up cameras, additional batteries and possible to ensure we have done justice to the event.
Do you charge for travel?
Yes, if it away from Bangalore. We usually expect the client to make arrangements.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
We ensure we expedite this process as much as possible as we understand the eagerness behind it. The ETA is anywhere between 3 - 5 working days.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, we do.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, we do.
When will the client get the final album?
We include the participation of clients in this process. If everything is done according to the plan then it will take 2 weeks.
